By Kylie Woon, 08 Aug 2017
The CEOs of top companies—such as Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos and YouTube’s Susan Wojcicki—all run companies worth billions.
However, their most jealously guarded asset is not money, but time.
By utilizing productivity hacks that protect this precious asset, they manage to maximise their work hours and even manage to get home by 5:00pm for dinner most nights.
Fast Company collected a list of top CEO productivity hacks. Read some top productivity hacks below, and head over here for the entire, detailed list.
Assign themes to work days
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey organizes his workflow into daily themes, telling Techonomy that “on Monday…I focus on management” and “Tuesday is focused on product,” and so on.
Giving each day a focus will help keep you from getting sidetracked. Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg echoes these sentiments, and can sum it up in two simple words.
The “one thing”
Similarly, give yourself a yearly goal and dedicate daily or weekly time where smaller tasks are set aside so that big goal can be worked towards. This ensures big priorities do not get overlooked by the daily onslaught of smaller tasks.
Purge your inbox
To avoid clutter and distraction, overcome your digital hoarding habit and purge your inbox. Do not use your work email for newsletters or other subscription services, and delete all unimportant emails mercilessly, leaving only important priorities behind.
Clear simple tasks first
It works for Mark Zuckerberg, who likes to clear easy-to-accomplish tasks first, setting a productive tone for the rest of the day and allowing all energy to then be focussed on more complex tasks.
